Town of Mills River Santa Tour

December 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Santa Claus is coming to town! To the town of Mills River, to be exact. On Saturday, December 12th, Santa will ride on a big, red fire truck through Mills River neighborhoods to bring holiday cheer to children of all ages.

Santa is scheduled to arrive from the North Pole at 10:00 AM and will trade his sleigh and reindeer for a big red fire truck bringing Holiday cheer to the boys and girls of Mills River. Santa’s trip will be wrapped up about 5:00 PM, with a final stop at Mills River Park before heading back to the North Pole. Due to Mills River’s size and mountainous roads, the fire truck will not be able to travel up each road in Town, but will pass through the Town’s main roadways and as many neighborhoods as possible.

For those not along Santa’s Route, you can catch a glimpse of the jolly old elf at one of the designated “Santa Stops.” Santa’s helpers will be on hand to give out candy canes to any children they see along the way. Due to the restrictions on gatherings and risks associated with COVID-19, we are kindly asking folks to remain in their cars at designated “Santa Stops.” Santa’s helpers will bring a candy cane to you. Make sure to wear a mask, we do not want Santa to get sick!

To find out when Santa will be in your neighborhood visit www.millsriver.org/santa to find out an approximate time of arrival. On Saturday, December 12 beginning at 10 a.m., you will be able to track Santa live via GPS on our website and on the “Town of Mills River, NC” Facebook page. Please remember that all times are estimates and we cannot guarantee arrival times. The best way to know Santa is coming to use the live tracker and to listen for the holiday music and to look for the flashing lights coming down the street!

In the event or inclement weather on December 12th, the tour will occur at the same times on December 23, 2020. For all the details on the Mills River Santa Tour 2020 please visit our web site at www.millsriver.org/santa or call Mills River Town Hall at 828-890-2901.
